Swimming the English Channel has a long history. The first who successfully swam the Channel was Captain Webb, an Englishman. This was in August 1875. He landed in France 21 hours 45 minutes after entering the water at Dover. He was followed by other men and so swimming the English Channel began. Swimming the Channel is not easy. Though the Channel is 21 miles, swimmers usually have to swim 30 to 35 miles because of tides. The sea is usually cold. They are given food during the swim by men who go with them in small boats. The Channel swimmer loses about 7 kg of his weight during the swimming. But the enthusiasts are not stopped, by the difficulties. Their purpose is not only to cross the Channel, but to set a new record. And some of them are very successful. Not only men but woman swimmers also set Channel records. Until 1977 the nonstop two-way crossing was made by only 4 people, all of them men. In 1977 a 19 year-old student, Cindy Nicholas, became the first woman who made the two-way trip. She swam from Dover to the French coast in 8 hours 58 minutes and swam back in 10 hours 56 minutes. The previous record was 30 hours.

London is one of Britain's greatest trading ports. And there are many sights along the river Thames which remind the visitors of Britain’s past. One of the most interesting places to visit is Greenwich in the South West of London and the famous museum of old ships on the river Thames. You can see the famous "Cutty Sark" there. The "Cutty Sark" is a type of sailing ship called a "clipper". They launched her in 1869 and wanted her to be the fastest ship in China tea trade. For that is what the ship carried tea from the Far East. In those days there was a lot of competition among the ship owners to bring home tea from China as quickly as possible. In 1954, many years later, they moored the "Cutty Sark" at Greenwich so that visitors can now admire her.
